issuings. but i don't think europe will put us in a whole. experts make up only two percent of american gdp. if you see the u.s. banks pull back on lending we'll have problems. >> to victoria's point. then europe and china matter more on the u.s. economy. what do you think? >> i think we were so burned by the 2008 melt down that many people didn't see we overdo the threat on the horizon. victoria is right. it takes a couple of 10ths of a point and we are perilous close to a rescission. i don't think it is a big event. rick, they are worried about the fiscal christs and we have a capitol strike going on. u.s. treasuriers saying we are parking 50 percent of the debt in u.s. backings. isn't that poor of problem. >> we hear the bad news and it makes us nervous . victoria hit the fact on the nose. two percent of the gdp comes from the sales.own yes, recessin highly unlikely. what does worry me. u.s. banks have far more exposure to the european front than we are told. it is a credit crunch we could do without. >> i think mike hasn't heard the news yet. the u.s. housing market bottomed on tuesday
moderator of "meet the press" with us from our washington newsroom tonight. so, david, give us a viewer's guide to what we're seeing here. >> this is really an attempt by the obama campaign to talk about what it wants to talk about, and that is mitt romney's time as head of bain capital. why? because they would not like to talk about the jobs report right now and the tough economy. they want to talk about mitt romney as a very wealthy person who ran a venture capital firm and put the onus on him to explain whether he was involved in outsourcing of jobs, keep up the pressure about whether bain was exploiting workers and companies. really to make the case to middle class voters that mitt romney is not on their side and president obama is. that's the argument. that's why they want the attention here and why they'll focus on this period of time of just what mitt romney was doing when he was filing papers to the s.e.c. saying he was still the chairman even though he says as you just heard he had no operational involvement. >> all right. david gregory, we will look for you sunday morning on "
: thank you. what is interesting to me, having read the memo that was presented to us and also in the presentation, is that there is no mention of the planning commission. it is extremely perturbing to think of the department as a separate entity from this commission. so i think the process to me is flawed. from the standpoint that it is the commission that makes the decisions. it is the commission to whom staff makes all their presentations. it is the commission to whom the audience and the public and interest groups and developers and property owners and others are speaking to, and yet, the entire program we have been presented has to do with department staff, so i am not ready to vote to support or wherever the action is that we are being asked to do today. and i think that it is also -- i do not know if it is telling for -- under program parties, you are using the word " branding." that is extremely disturbing to me, to use that word when we talk about a public department. are we trying to sell the department and commission to the public like we are through advertising a pr
, it is something that we have talked about. it is important for us to understand what the cbos are doing. it is important for them to have specific training for their individuals. they should also have some guidelines and some criteria to evaluate their successes, on a quarterly and yearly basis. >> thank you. last question. what are the types of job opportunities that are available for at risk youth? what are the funding opportunities? >> there are not many job opportunities right now. with the way that funding is currently, it is only being reduced. what we try to do is think creative. we try to create an internship programs, where we try to confuse -- infuse youth. we utilize a lot of non-western ways of trying to have youth identified. we infuse political education so they can make a good choice. there are other programs like oasis. there are not many opportunities, not everybody could work -- all the work permits required. it also requires a social security number. alternative pathways are a good way to go, such as those internship opportunities. use these venues as an opportunity t
christs and we have a capitol strike going on. u.s. treasuriers saying we are parking 50 percent of the debt in u.s. backings. isn't that poor of problem. >> we hear the bad news and it makes us nervous . victoria hit the fact on the nose. two percent of the gdp comes from the sales. slow down yes, recession highly unlikely. what does worry me. u.s. banks have far more exposure to the european front than we are told. it is a credit crunch we could do without. >> i think mike hasn't heard the news yet. the u.s. housing market bottomed on tuesday . more good news, because costs are low in the u.s. we are bringing manufacturing back to the u.s.. there is a 50-50 chance we'll repeal obama care. >> not a chance. >> greece is about the size of connecticut and maybe it will not affect the u.s. economy. if our banks had taken the time to shore up the balance sheet. you think what matters most is washington d.c. policy. who is going to be elected president is going to matter a lot . what is happening in congress is a big wild card here . europe, i am not as worried about europe. i agree w
to nature, you can use some of that money to get people and other parts of the city into golden gate park to appreciate nature for example. i urge you to look at the value of our social and human capital because sometimes it is worth more than the fish or money. >> thank you for letting me speak. i am sad because we are changing a beautiful park that i have loved for almost 50 years have i have been here. i asked you to look into your heart to and see what you're doing. i reminded of the bumper sticker that said the, what would jesus do? i would ask you what john mclaren would do. >> next speaker. >> thank you for this opportunity. i am a home owner on great highway and i have been sending e-mail's to you folks. i have never been involved in city politics and i have no idea how these decisions get made. i thought, surely, they will not allow this to happen. and it keeps on rolling and rolling. i don't know what anybody in this room can do to change the way it is moving or except in alternative, but i am a surfer, i have a financial planner. i think golden gate park is absolutely unique. t
have with us tonight, mayor ed lee. as a city is a minister, he represented gavin newsom in defending this city's proclamation. and a new chapter in asian pacific american history when he was elected as the city's first asian-american mayor. ladies and gentlemen -- all right, join me in welcoming mayor edwin m. lee. [applause] you have your own crowded back there. the m. in your middle name stand s for ma. >> thank you all for coming. i'm glad to be here on the eighth time we've celebrated this, and want to give a thank- you for helping us put this on. thank you! and of course, i join here as part of an official city family. thank you for being here. he is joined by supervisors carmen chu, jane kim, and eric mar. our elected officials, jeff adachi, the public defender, the recorder assessor, hydra mendoza, and emily murase. we're also thankful for the chief of police, thank you. i would like to also acknowledges someone that has been a very special friend of mine, someone that has given me a lot of support and advice over the years. and also someone who has not missed one
stores. he's on the phone with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> help us break down the stet lment. who is the real winner here? is it the retailer? >> unfortunately, it's not. the only winners are visa, mastercard and their banks. they have gotten a hall pass if this deal goes through. it's not a done deal. it's a proposal now. they have a hall pass to continue to raise their swipe fees without restraint and not have anybody be able to enforce the law against them. they have to be feeling good now. >> the swipe fee reduction is only for eight months. what could happen after that. it could go back up? >> i tell you, with the credit card companies, you always have to read the fine print. what you read this is remarkable. they are not even going to reduce the swipe fees for the eight months. what they are going to do is take the dollar value of that and roll it into the settlement. because there's nothing to change the structure of how they do things today, by the time the merchants actually get any of that money, swipe fees will have gone up by more than the amount of that money. me
which no one is prepared to do and this is going to be the reality once the u.s. leaves. >> i think the execution of women particularly without due process even with due process it is a crime against humanity and the international community should act accordingly. >> president karzai has strong words but he needs to match the words with action. unless change comes from within afghanistan then we will continue to see more of this. >> is it possible, though? you know, change? i mean, one really hopeful development i saw recently is that the taliban lives and breathes by poppy breeding of poppy plants and turning them into heroin. and there's more they are switching to grow offing of spices which is more lucrative for the farmers. is there any other way to cut the funds to the taliban so that these creeps crawl back into the holes where they belong and die? >> i think the international community can and should put pressure on afghanistan to the extent that we can. but ultimately, there is cause for hope because after this event, over 100 men and women took to the streets of kabul, afgh
elsewhere, though their rates of nonviolent crime and drug use are not that much different than ours. so if another country were to lock up its own people at the rate that we do, and if our rates of incarceration were more normative to the rest of the world, we would regard with that other country was doing as a massive violation of human rights. that's the way we would look at it. now, the other point here is what we're doing is not even consistent with american history. i mean, we had 500,000 people behind bars in 1980 and now we have 2.3 million, 2.4 million people behind bars and almost have 5,000 people behind bars just for a drug violation. there are as many people behind bars for a drug violation than we had for everything in 1980. it's not consistent with global standards and not consistent with our own history. it's costing a vast amount of money and i think what you see is for some of the d.a.'s and others are beginning to say enough is enough. we're seeing prison populations beginning to decline but when it comes down to the question, who are the first people we shoul
and sin no more. and if you do, you'll be back here to see us. and so, i think that once again, i go back to the fact that under the current system, because we have so many of those individuals who were once incarcerated at the state level, being pushed down to the counties, there's no room at the end in terms of the county jails. so misdemeanors aren't going to be sentenced to county jail but will be sentenced in community service or whatever. and for those individuals who do need some measure of control and supervision to deal about -- deal with their conviction problems, it's not going to happen at the misdemeanor level. >> let me go to a couple of the questions from the audience. i've shared them with our district attorney. george, two questions there, one related to whether or not drug possession should be treated differently for adults than from juveniles. and then a question about back on track, whether or not that program would be positively or adversely affected by senator leno's proposal. >> yes, let me start with the first question concerning juveniles. i think juveniles defini
apart from the other prisoners. triangles of various colors were used to identify each category of undesirable. yellow for the jewish, brown for gypsies, red for political prisoners, green for prisoners, black for anti-socialist, purple for jehovah's witness, blue for immigrants, and tank for homosexuals. the pink triangles were slightly larger than the other triangle'' so that the guards could identify them from a distance. it is said that those who wore the pink triangles were singled out by the guards to receive harsher treatment and when the guards were finished with them, some of the other inmates would harm them as well. at the end of the war, when the concentration camps were finally liberated, virtually all of the prisoners were released except for those with the pink triangle. many of those with pink triangles on their pockets were put back into prison and the nightmare continued. it is the same kind of senseless, irrational hatred that still haunts days, jews, blacks, and other minorities today. the taliban in afghanistan required non-muslims to wear identifying badges
been kidnapped in that area this year. the u.s. embassy in cairo saying we are in close touch with the egyptian authorities who are doing everything they can to bring about the safe release of the american tourists. joining me from jordan is elise. good morning. tell us what is different about this kidnapping than the others we have seen this year. >> reporter: yes, randi. the reason it's different is this time the kidnappers are usually doing these kind of things for money. this time, they have an agenda. they have relatives that have been detained on drug charges and they want to let them go. it's more complicated than getting that money to them. they get released right away. this time, it's more complex. >> they are making specific demands to have their relatives released? >> specific demands to have relatives released. the americans are saying they are working with the egyptian authorities, but they have their own laws. a lot of times, you don't negotiate with kidnappers or those kind of people. it's more complex than just giving them their money and letting the people go.
under. steve stricker, though, if you're just joining us, is trying to make a little bit of history. win this event for a fourth consecutive year. that has been done by only four men in the history of the game of golf. on this level. going all the way back to tom morrison in the late 1800's and the open championship. tiger has been able to do it twice at bay hill and torrey pines. stricker, trying to accomplish something special. this man will have something to say about it. troy matteson, he is our leader. this for birdie. gathers some speed in there. he will have a test coming back. six feet or so. ian: that's that invisible extra four or five feet right there with the slope towards the water. off the grain where it goes with where the water flows. you can see players misreading the putt. it was just -- just a little too cautious not wanting to make a mistake on the last hole and hook it in the water. and jeff maggert, his fellow competitor is inside for two. and he will have a shorter putt than this. bill: and this is the course that someone can come from way behind. ian: definitely.
tree, a unique design store in japan town. all of our horses every year please make us something unique. i hope your visit the store. thank you. >> to all of our supporters and sponsors, thank you. not if you came and, i hope you were able to meet up with some of our readers in the lobby with the special pen for heritage month. colombo was in the shape of an a. we hope you'll make a donation and purchase a pen and were it with pride throughout the month of may. there are also a number of sponsors that generously supported this year's celebration. the ads on buses around town as well as posters and coasting on face but -- facebook. we want to a knowledge the additional sponsors beginning with the heritage partner level. it includes southwest airlines and a big welcome to the newest sponsor, walgreen's. was that he will grains contingent died just heard? -- the walgreen's contingent i just heard? did you have cocktails' before coming here? the japan town merchants association, the garage association and in the sugar bowl the bakery, thank you for coming as well. and a big thanks to our me
straight. molly is joining us more with what the governor had to say. >> former governor mitt romney said the attacks on the tenure in bain capitol are ridiculous . beneath the presidency. and romney did interviews yesterday with all . broadcast and cable news channel to push back on the attacks. the obama campaign is challenging the assertion that he left bain in 1989 . documents say that romney was the ceo three years later. bain said there a lag in updating the paperwork. >> and the discrepancy may make romney a fell mon. he needs to reign in the team and take responsibility for what they are saying. this is absurd. i think this is showing a pattern. you had bad news on the economic front and 41 straight months with unemployment above 8 percent . the president said he will raise taxes on people . trying to gut welfare reform. it is beneath the dignity of the office. >> the president is in virginia about to give a speech. the team is trying to connect romney to bain and out sourcing jobs. the only sound is romney singing "america the beautiful" about words appear of jobs going over seas
such passion for the work he did and for his family. he told us he loved us every day . every time you talked to him. >> politics set aside as both presidential candidates tweeted out their condollence. president obama said beloved member of our campaign family passed away and our prayers with you. we'll miss you alex. >> ann and i were deeply saddened to hear of the death of alex okrent. >> and a federal judge is allowing the stage strict antiabortion law to take affect and allowing the only abortion clinic to remain open. the law requires anyone to be preventing abortion to be an obgyn. they are given more time the oh, pgyn don't have credentials and are working from out of state . weather is a tail of two extremes. heavy rains caused flash flooding and houston sex sex --- texas is under water after receiving rain. the massive down pours are causing problems. but raising hope that it is rain will end the drought condition in southeast texas. texas is one of 26 states that have natural disasters due to drought and blazing heat that is taking a tollon crops. we'll have more on this story. wha
. let us talk about the merits. but why now? let us be real. we know what will happen if this gets past november. the people in this room will think about running for mayor themselves. they would get skittish. other people are going to start influencing people who are not running for mayor. then, all bets are off. this is the perfect time to vote, when the politics of the next campaign are not influencing the decision. or maybe i am wrong. maybe the politics are already involved in canada's are already thinking of running for mayor. but let us talk about the issues. let us not use a delay. that is the cloak over the real argument. supervisor wiener: thank you, colleagues. are there any other comments? seeing none, we have a motion on the floor to continue. i think there may be motions to amend as well. i would like to get all the motions on the floor. then, we will have public comment on the motions. for members of the public, everyone is welcome to comment. if these amendments are adopted, it will require a continuance. so there will be an opportunity next week, but not everyone may be
for relations. some are completely non-toxic like the court to base their using in san carlos and piedmont- -- the cork in san carlos and piedmont or the carpet pad in new york. the eir failed to consider alternatives. the city of piedmont's eir concluded that sbr astroturf creates a significant and unavoidable health risk so they analyze the alternatives. piedmont is installing cork, cork is a great underlayment, and has been installed in hundreds of fields around the world. los angeles and new york have abandoned sbr chrome rubber and are using other alternatives. there is no set -- no reason san francisco should fall behind these other cities. how many of you buy organic produce? the cancer risk you get from eating produce that is not organic is less than one in 1 million. we pay twice as much for the organic stuff because we do not want our kids to eat the pesticides. we think that is worthwhile. this risk is about somewhere between 8 and 19 times higher than that. whether that is significant or not i do not know. it seems like we ought to try to avoid it. the principle of the city has
of homicides hit u.s. cities. chicago compared to afghanistan while a rash of shootings rattle afghanistan. later, a shocking death among the hollywood elite. sage stallone dead at 36. >>> it is saturdays, july 14. good morning. glad you are with us. i'm randi kaye. it is early. hopefully your kids are tucked in bed sleeping like angels. it's what one tennessee woman was hoping for when she adopted a little boy from russia. he was a 7-year-old boy that his mother decided he was mentally unstable. she put him on a plane and returned him like a pair of pants that didn't fit. she was not aware of his mental condition. now, a tennessee judge ordered the mother in this case to pay for the boy's care in russia since legally, she's considered to be his mother. she has to pay $150,000 in back support and fees plus, $1,000 a month until he's 18. he's ten, so it will amount to $246,000, to be exact. the boy wanted to will her. the adoption agency says the boy was not olent. here is my talk back question for you. do you think the mother should have to pay for the boy? should she pay more, less or not
be a loss for you. plus, a wave of homicides hit u.s. cities, chicago compared to afghanistan. a spade of shootings rattle new york. all morning we'll put murder in america in focus. >>> and later, an incredible story of survival, a month in the desert, no food, no supplies. how one man was rescued just hours from death. >>> good morning everybody. i'm randi kaye. we start this hour with a historic credit card settlement that could have you paying more out of your pocket. if you're just joining us, here's the deal. visa, mastercard and some of the country's biggest banks have agreed to a massive settlement with retailers that totals a whopping $7.25 billion. the lawsuit centers around credit card swipe fees. merchants allege credit card companies were fixing the price on those fees, but the proposed settlement now gives retailers the green light to tack on a surcharge if you use plastic, which could mean a bigger tab for you. and there's much more when you read the fine print. douglas canter, a lawyer for the national association for convenience stores has read all the fine print and j
on the outsourcing issue and a great friend, congress wokecongresswoman louise slaughter thank you for joining us. >> it is a pleasure. >> eliot: tell us what your amendment would do, and why it's so important. >> well, democrats have been trying for some time to stop the outsourcing of jobs. the second thing we want to do is reinforce the sanctions and help our ally israel by making it tougher for iran. we believe the sanctions are working. and we simply need more. third, we want to say the corporations are not more important than people in the united states, and will not be ever again. i want to say one thing about the mining loss. i'm not sure that people understand that. the law that we operate under today was written in 1882 and signed by ulysses grant. we stopped a consortium including iran, we from uranium from the grand canyon. it's a scandal in itself, and it needs to be changed. iran is a threat to our best ally. we need to do what we can to keep those sanctions going. by all accounts, nicholas kristof, the people of iran would very much like to be friends of america. they hold us in hi
this round-robin of interviews, not just with us, but with other networks. wolf, it's interesting to note, he essentially said the same thing, gave the same answers to all of us in the course of all of these interviews. >> he said he would be a zone man as far as picking a vice presidential candidate. he didn't tell you who it would be. >> no, he didn't. and that's been his position so far in this campaign. that he's not going to talk about the vetting process. the vice presidential selection process. but i did ask him, because condoleezza rice's name did come up, whether or not he was concerned about being associated too much with the bush administration. as you know, earlier this week, he had that fund-raiser with dick cheney out in wyoming. it was interesting to note that mitt romney said in that interview that his administration would not be a carbon copy of anything in the past. a note there that he would like to get out that he would not be george w. bush, part ii. >> he was very strong on that specific point. good work, as usual. thanks so much, jim acosta, reporting. president obama a
it's time for jumbo wings and juicy glazed ribs and one famous harley riding barbecue guru shoes us how it's really done. this is "nightline," july 13, 2012. >>> good evening. tonight it's one of the most wide-spread scams in the world of cyber crime. raking in millions of each year. you receive an e-mail that looks like a cry from help from a friend who has been rob rd on vacation overseas, but it's really a hacker looking to cash in. well, when one of these e-mails ended up inbox of a "nightline" producer, she and abc's consumer correspondent elizabeth decided to follow the money and "nightline" investigates. >> reporter: hi. just writing to let you know my trip to the philippines with my family has been a mess. >> the e-mail came from 10,000 mimes away, pleading for help and money. >> it has been an awful experience. i was hit at the back of any neck with a club. >> it landed in our producer's inbox a few weeks ago and she suspected it was one of the most popular online cons going these days. one the fbi says costs americans millions of dollars a year. it's called the stranded tr
in outsourcing u.s. jobs. >> the obama campaign has already spent nearly $100 million on television commercials, most attacking romney's business record and accusing him of shipping jobs overseas. for "cbs this morning saturday," norah o'donnell, the white house. >> cbs news political director, john dickerson, is with us now. good morning, john. >> truth is, john, it's not unusual for a ceo to take a leave of absence. but it doesn't look very good. how do you think romney is handling this? are people going to understand this tricky situation? >> no. you're right. it looks a little exotic. it looks a little different than people's common experience. what governor romney wanted is his experience at bain to basically have people think he's a business guy, he knows how to fix the economy. that's all you need to know about him. now he's having to explain complicated business arrangements. he's talking about things that just sound different from people's day-to-day experience. it changes that bain story for him. he'd rather get off this topic, keep things focus odd n the and the status of the economy
continues, and so did the killings. >> and middle east analyst and author joins us now in the studio to talk more about this. russians have warned that the conflict is becoming more sectarian. are we going to see an all-out civil war in syria? >> that is unfortunately indeed the past we see evolving. what started out as civil unrest against regime in justice and as a quest for change has now really become a full-fledged civil war -- what started out as civil unrest against regime injustice. this makes it so complicated to really solve the issue. there is the government that still assumes it can crush this rebellion, and there is an opposition that is getting stronger and stronger, militia- type of opposition, that also believes it can crush the regime militarily, but in both cases, it will not work. >> the west has been a constantly trying to ratchet up pressure, but china and russia are opposed to that. is there anything that can be done to get china to agree to increase the pressure? >> both china and russia worry that too many regimes in the region fall and become pro- western. syria and
print and joins us now from dc. doug, you have said it is not the retailers or the consumers, but actually visa, mastercard and their banks that win out in this one. why is that? >> unfortunately, this agreement -- and i want to emphasize that it's not a done deal yet. this would allow visa and mastercard to keep fixing the fees, the banks not to compete and the fees to keep going up. we pay them now to the tune of $50 billion a year. and we just don't know it. unfortunately, that's going to continue if this gets pushed through. >> $50 billion a year. that is a number we don't hear very often. but the credit card companies agree to reduce the swipe fees for retailers for eight months. what else is included as part of this settlement? >> well, you have to read the fine print when you deal with credit card companies. and that's true here too. when you read the fine print, it's eye-opening. they're not going to reduce the fees even for the eight months. what they're going to do is give merchants the equivalent of that amount of cash and keep raising the fees. the cruel joke is b
. it is respectful of the architecture in the area. i like the suggestion of an homage to the older building by using the entry. i do not know if that is functional or not. i think it is a nice idea. it would have to be worked out. without compromising the importance of having a gracious entry into the building. i think that is a nice idea. it looks like it is a limestone -- i am not sure what the stucco is on the outside. i think that is really well done. those are some of my thoughts as far as architectural things. i am very much in favor of it. i think we are ready to go. we have to get this done. commissioner miguel: i appreciated very much the comments in reminding us this is the last of san francisco's community hospitals. davies at cpmc was the german hospital, part of that immigrant community. even though slightly different, we have the old sutter pacific hospital that is now a senior facility. these have all gone past -- this is the last one standing. there is no question that the considerations of hospitals have changed drastically and are continuing to change. hospitals not only have to ac
neighborhoods to move to in the u.s. because san francisco is not a good place and this is one of the aspects. sometimes you need to see the face of the people that are making a decision and their boarding passes. i have the boarding pass in my hand. hope to make it -- hope you make a good decision. president chiu: thank you. next speakers, please. come on up. >> hello, i am jake and when i started on the first game of my season, a bunch of sprinklers came out on the soccer field and delayed their games so it could not play for long time and i tripped over one of them and hurt myself. i like turf better because it is safer. it is not as bumpy as grass. so. president chiu: thank you. next speaker. if you want to pull the microphone down so we can hear you. >> my name is ben and when i got a pass from my teammate take over there and i had a scoring opportunity, the ball was not in the right position and i had an open shot. i tripped on a lump in the grass which made me fall, hurt myself, and make me not kick the ball at all. i think turf is better because it is flatter and you do not mess as ea
